If you have the choice to sit it out or dance, always dance!
Me and my sisters.
It’s true that with age you gain wisdom and experience. But, sometimes, that experience can include new and challenging signs of aging that can impact your body and life, like adult incontinence (AI). And, sometimes, when we have these experiences, we bury our heads in the sand, hoping that if we endure something long enough, the problem we’re facing will just go away.
You need to know you are NOT alone in your battle with AI.
In Part One of this three-part series on adult incontinence, I told you about the three common types of urinary incontinence:
- When you have a strong need to urinate but can’t reach the toilet in time — it can happen to anyone at any age.
- When you experience bladder leaks when coughing, sneezing or laughing — it is even more common in younger rather than older women.
- A combination of both stress and urge incontinence symptoms.
Incontinence can be caused by anything from pregnancy to menopause, strenuous physical activities or even a medical condition. To get a more detailed understanding of your personal incontinence symptoms and what is causing them, schedule an appointment to talk to your doctor.
Although bladder leaks should not be considered an inevitable part of aging, bladder sensitivity is quite common and incontinence should never get in the way of doing the things you love.
To live your life to the fullest and be truly fearless after 50 (or at any age for that matter), it’s essential for you to rise up against your fear of bladder leaks and say, “It’s no big deal, I’m not alone and when I get the choice to sit it out or dance, I will always dance”.
